Radar Guns In Pa

10.07.13 | Bob Price

Pennsylvania is the only state in the country that doesn't allow municipal police to use radar speed guns. Only state police can use them. House Bill 38, which is awaiting consideration by the House Transportation Committee, would allow officers who work for “full-service police departments” to use radar. But since 1961, no efforts to expand radar use have gained traction. Supporters say radar guns could improve safety and reduce fatalities. Opponents argue that radar can be used to rake in money through speed traps.
